Keeping kids in school
The Smith Family’s Learning for Life program empowers children experiencing disadvantage to create better futures for themselves through education. Charity partnerships like ours help The Smith Family provide financial assistance, tailored learning programs and one-on-one support to young Australians in need.
Activities that fuel the future
Simply Energy is a long-time partner of the Mirabel Foundation – an Australian charity that helps children who have been orphaned or abandoned due to their parents’ illicit drug use. As well as supporting community-based education and early intervention programs, the funds we raise help Mirabel offer kids a sense of hope, belonging and connection through family camps and recreation programs.
Chipping in for children
Very Special Kids cares for children with life-limiting conditions and supports over 850 families across Victoria each year. Our annual Charity Golf day, which helps raise funds for Very Special Kids' courageous cause, has been running since 2016.
Giving a helping hand
Victorian charity Cottage by the Sea delivers children’s programs that help impact positive change in young people’s lives. Over the years, Simply Energy has taken part in annual Cottage by the Sea working bees, helping improve facilities for young people in need. Our volunteers also installed 20 solar panels and a 5.2kw converter on the roof, helping Cottage by the Sea reduce energy costs and save more funds for future projects.
Sleeping out for those in need
As a child, our CEO Shannon Hyde faced the risk of homelessness. Now each year, supported by Simply Energy staff, Shannon takes part in Vinnies CEO Sleepout. From feeding a family to keeping the power on over winter, donations help provide year-round support to Aussies experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
Looking to the future
We’re not just making a difference at Simply Energy, we’re making a lasting impact. That’s why we back a bunch of inspiring initiatives that support young people.
